Congratulations @taylor40906 and @verycutekittiesYou have each just won a copy of Since 1940: Recipes and Stories from Fran’s Restaurant, an 82-page, full-colour, cookbook / graphic novel from Fran’s Restaurant! Please email me your first and last name along with your mailing address to

I also want to say a big THANK YOU to the 27 contestants who participated in the contest

Here's a snapshot of the Excel spreadsheet where I tracked the #fjcfrans hashtag from day one of the contest. The tracking was done using chronological order, as in, #1 was the first person to enter the contest. To enter, the person had to tweet "Hey @foodieyu I want to win a copy of Since 1940 the cookbook/graphic novel from @fransrestaurant! #frans75 #fjcfrans". Each person could tweet once a day for the duration of the contest. Once the contest was over and everybody's entries were accounted for I checked to see if they follow me (@foodieyu) on Twitter. Below are the 65 valid entries:

I used "True Random Number Generator" from to pick two winners for me:
